The annual @CareQualityComm #StateOfCare report’s out today, just in time to focus minds as decisions are made about future health and care funding. Here’s my thread, picking out some of the nuggets that have got me thinking. 🧵 1/10… Cover of CQC report: The state of health care and adult soci
2/10 Overall #StateOfCare message: gridlocked care, growing risks of harm and a need to tackle inequalities. Summarised here in the foreword. Stresses need for workforce investment at system level. Rightly says need to understand people’s experiences overall not in isolation. Text of first page of report foreword.Text of second page of report foreword.
3/10 Good to see this reminder in #StateOfCare that ICSs need to use insights from local people to drive and track improvement. Key role for #Healthwatch and #VCSFE organisations there, I’d say. Very relevant to the need for shared learning described in section on collaboration. The aim of ICSs is to deliver joined-up care that better meeAlthough services were under great pressure, we have raised

Some key points for primary care and GPs from the @CareQualityComm #StateOfCare report - a thread.
1/ GP practices are, once again, the highest-rated NHS service (90% rated Good, 4% requires improvement and <0.5% inadequate) that the CQC covers.
2/ The report says workforce data from NHS Digital shows "some areas of concern". Although the total no of full-time equivalent GPs from September 2020 onwards is higher than it has been, the no of qualified permanent GPs, excl GPs in training grade and locums, has been falling.
3/ While many people in the 2021 GP patient survey said they found it "easy" to get through to someone on the phone at their practice (68%), the CQC said it was told by patients about their "inability to make an appointment".

Highlights issues CQC will need to focus on in its new ICS oversight role. Here’s a thread of what leaps out at me 🧵👇 1/15 Cover of CQC report: The state of health care and adult soci
2/15 Throughout #StateOfCare I can see signs of how closely @CareQualityComm has listened to what @RichmondGroup14 and other voluntary sector organisations have said consistently during the year. Also good to see insight from @ageukcampaigns @Rethink_ @RedCrossPolicy being used.
3/15 Strong message in #StateOfCare about unmet need (a key issue we’ve highlighted) and risk that failure to address social care workforce issues would turn ripple of knock-on effects into a “tsunami”. Good to see call for further discharge funding, noting role of VCSE here. Text from State of Care foreword: “The alternative is thatText from State of Care foreword: “Increased stability in

The Times today

Meanwhile, Far Right intensify propaganda against testing & urge us all to trust in UK Gov experts & senior officials....who haven't even managed to ensure adequate supply of plastic pinafores, let alone proper PPE

#HerdImmunity #Covid19UK #Covid19 #OurNHSPeople
The vile UK Far Right have been holding up Sweden's aggressive #HerdImmunity strategy as an exemplar

BUT Sweden's deaths are sadly coming home to roost

Norway, which has tested most & has strict lockdown, has much lower death rate…

Recently back from the @CareQualityComm launch event for #StateOfCare 2018/19.

Full report is here:…

But if you're short on time here's my take on the key points.

Sound the #thread klaxon /1
Most media coverage I've seen focused on A&E departments (see example below).

That's an important story (discussed below) but it doesn't feel radically new - we get a lot of data on A&E every month via @NHSEnglandStats /2

More people are going to A&E but that's largely been driven by attendances at minor injuries.

The bigger problem is the growth in emergency admissions, which suggests more patients with more severe or complex needs:…

I’ve been through today’s @CareQualityComm #StateOfCare report so you don’t miss the bits that matter but don’t make the headlines. Here’s a link to the report.…
Buckle up for my annual thread. 1/11 Front cover of CQC report on the state of health care and adult social care in England 2018/19.
2/11 #StateOfCare identifies the challenges faced by people with multiple needs and describes people and their families needing to chase services to get the right care. @RichmondGroup14 work on multiple conditions has also found people feeling exhausted and overwhelmed. Page 15 of CQC report.Page 18 of CQC report.
3/11 #StateOfCare shares a story from @RichmondGroup14 member @age_uk that shows how people can sometimes be viewed by professionals with a narrow focus, especially outside obvious moments of transition. Page 19 of CQC report.
